After finishing my scarf last Sunday I started in on one for my sister! This is a thinner fashion type yarn (that she picked out) but I stuck with the size 15 needles because I like the look it produced.
This week I pulled out my library card and used it for the first time in a few years! I checked out a bunch of books and dvds about knitting and crochet! One of the dvds, Learn to Knit Lesson 3 teaches the cable knit stitch, the first thing that is taught is a swatch which you can see below and next up is a scarf project! Can't wait to start!
I always thought knitting was so hard so I'm so brought that I've been able to do this! I'm also still determined to learn crochet so I can make amigurumi.
